Consult with people ‘one step ahead of you’ for start-up success, says Trustpilot founder

Growth Business

Experiencing an environment in which successful entrepreneurs were commonplace was key to successfully launching start-up Trustpilot, according to CEO and founder Peter Mühlmann. In an exclusive chat Mühlmann told Growth Business he believes things may have worked out differently if he has been in a different environment when he launched the business in 2007.

“If [the environment] had been different it’s not at all sure that I would be on the same path I am on now,” he said. “I think it’s important that you seek out people who are one step ahead of your journey for advice.”
